@MsGraceCollier @theage Hold on… So SDA diddles its members. Doesn’t this deal cut wage settlements in favour of consumers? Hooray!

Ok… Canto XI of Don Juan in the can, at last. Juan moves quickly into Regency Society, London, early 1790s. Byron whets his knife and grins…

If the growth in non-mfg. employm’t is in production & non-prod’n business services, is that deindustrialization or *changing* indust’n?

Fall in mfg. employm’t may seem evidence of ‘deindustrialization’ (marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolu…). But it’s complicated! pic.twitter.com/s0IMHY8uwW

Still it’s worrying that “big data” can show spurious correlates everywhere. Too easy to win cred for dumb ideas. twitter.com/BaldwinRE/stat…

@CoppetainPU It’s unclear. Azevedo doesn’t know either! Members might have to negotiate if there’s an actual breach of bindings. So what?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to CoppetainPU

@CoppetainPU UK schedules part of EU schedules. Must renegotiate only if bindings will be breeched. Don’t know if, what, how many yet.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to CoppetainPU

Azevedo’s claim UK wd. have to renegotiate accession to after is speculation & bullying. UK voters should ignore him.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Azevedo should shut up about ! Consequences a matter for Members (you know, sovereigns), not the staff::ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/7…

@snlester BTW, in case it wasn’t obvious, anywhere outside the ‘Pies enclave, this result is sort of equivalent to victory for the Klingons.

Puzzling. In Byron’s works, conversations, letters, diaries I find no mention of Beethoven; modern genius, political ally, contemporary.

Still, the US can cut the cost of paying of foreign debts by driving down their dollar value (exorbitant privilege). twitter.com/snlester/statu…
